I love starting my day with a bowl of oats!

They're so comforting, hearty and customizable. From Creamy Coconut Matcha Oatmeal to Vegan Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal, the flavoring options are pretty endless.And when you add in the option to bake and blend your oats, you can make a healthy breakfast that tastes and looks like dessert.

This recipe goes all-in on dessert flavors with dark chocolate, almond butter and maple syrup. However, it will keep you full and satisfied all morning, thanks to plenty of protein and fiber!

Ingredients for Chocolate Baked Oats

The list of ingredients for this vegan breakfast recipe is short and sweet! Here's what you need to make high-protein vegan chocolate baked oatmeal:

  • Rolled oats. These are also sometimes called old-fashioned oats. Avoid quick-cooking oats, which won't hold up well in the oven and are lower in nutrients and fiber.
  • Cocoa powder. Opt for unsweetened. You can also use cacao powder.
  • Banana. Choose a soft, ripe banana or the sweetest flavor.
  • Almond milk. Or any milk you like!
  • Almond butter. This adds richness and flavor. You could use a different nut or seed butter if you prefer. Peanut butter will give you a dessert-like flavor.
  • Maple syrup. Or use honey if you're not vegan.
  • Baking powder. This helps the oats rise up like little cakes in the oven.
  • Vanilla. To counter some of the bitterness of dark chocolate.
  • Dark chocolate chips to really round out your chocolate for breakfast experience.

Making Blended Baked Chocolate Oatmeal

If you haven't tried baked or blended oatmeal yet, you're in for a treat.

The result of blending all of the ingredients together before baking is a cake-like texture that's puffy and light, with a decadent, rich center.

You'll need two oven-safe ramekins to bake your oats. Be sure to spray them well with cooking spray before filling them for easier clean-up.

Honestly, you won't believe how delicious these chocolate baked oats are – it will feel like you're eating a brownie!

How to Increasing the Serving Size

This recipe serves two. However, you can easily increase the ingredients to make enough chocolate oatmeal to feed a crowd.

Simply scale everything up as necessary.

You can place all of the filled ramekins on a baking sheet for easy transfer to and from the oven. Or you could bake them in a muffin tin as a quick and easy meal prep breakfast idea for the week ahead!

  1. This was easy and delicious. It had a very rich, creamy taste, like a dessert. I added only 1 teaspoon maple syrup and it was plenty sweet for me.
